then the turkish government will put pressure on nato and the united states to act. and that's where the administration and nato will find themselves in a difficult position it's also true the turks are aiding and abetting an army that is fighting the syrian government. so it's getting murky in some ways. >> warner: so what happens if there were, hirsch hammel hem, several more accidents like what has happened in the last few days? what could it lead to? >> i think erdogan, the turkish primeinister, will be forced to intervene militarily. we don't know to what extent or on what level. already the turks launched a jet plane in june. two pilots were killed. this is the first time we had five civilians being killed. if this occurs, erdogan will be facing a tremendous challenge from within and he would lose whatever credibility he has already many people are criticizing the turks because in the last seven months they've been huffing and puffing saying we won't allow this to happen in syria, we will impose a no-fly zone or have our own security zone on the borders and crying wolf many tim

is part of nato, so turkey could invoke the collective defense clause of that treaty and it would draw on the united states and other western allies to recollect and defend turkey if it gets into a war with syria. the other dynamic, the syrian rebels need help. it could be a point that syrian rebels launch shells at turkey to try and start a war that obviously they would get a lost help from going up against the common enemy, president bashar al-assad. >>trace: and the syrian rebel, how are they doing? >>guest: they have not been doing great but this week they did get some good news in an unusual victory. they took over a syrian air defense space which means they got the missiles inside that base, and if they can figure out how to use the missiles against president bashar al-assad's air force that could change changes because the air force was pugs away at rebels and now we see a nasty side to the rebels. they put out a video where they threatened to execute some 50 iranian hostages if others are not released by the syrian government, and the iranian government, who have been a biggest
mean, turkey has a huge army, anderson. it's the second largest army in the nato military alliance. the last thing the syrians really need right now when they've lost so much of their own territory to syrian rebels is to take on a huge armed force like turkey. but turkey also has a lot to lose. i mean, it's had a booming economy in recent years that has slowed somewhat. it is fighting a kurdish pkk insurgency in southeastern parts of turkey. it has a booming tourism industry. it does not need a major conflict, another one on its borders with syria right now, which could further destabilize relations with major trading partners like russia and iran, who are strong supporters of the assad regime in syria. >> we'll continue to watch it. ivan, thanks. >>> we will obviously continue to follow that. let's check in with isha and the "360" bulletin. >>> nearly month after the deadly attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, an fbi investigation team got to the site and spent only a number of hours in the city. for security reasons, they traveled with u.s. military support. four americans w
